Less than 24 hours after Sunday night's Super Bowl LII, Bruno Mars is already weighing in on the 2019 game.
Pointing out how next year's big game will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Mars took to Twitter on Monday afternoon, tagging the NFL's account, noting the league's perfect "opportunity to celebrate incredible hip-hop [artists] from Atlanta next year."
Mars, who himself has performed at the Super Bowl twice in the last five years, also offered some ATL natives as suggestions for next year's halftime show: Outkast, Gucci Mane, T.I., Jeezy and Jermaine Dupri. "Just to name a few," he said, offering to help "curate" the big show, promising of a hip-hop halftime spectacle: "It would be the best party TV has ever seen!"
The singer's enthusiastic comments follow his big win at last month's 2018 Grammy Awards, including Song, Record and Album of the Year. His sweep also meant a shut-out for the likes of Jay-Z and SZA, both of whom walked away with no wins, drawing criticism from some viewers and industry watchers.
